The twitch.tv plugin is maintained at github: https://github.com/StateOfTheArt89/Twitch.tv-on-XBMC
The current twitch.tv version on xbmc (0.2.2) and the version on github (0.2.5) are not the same. The version on github, would solve most of the problems you mentioned. Since the current 0.2.5 version has some other issues, I didn't push it to the xbmc repo.
It would be great if you would take a look on the current version on github and maybe do a pull request.

Currently i'm swarmed with a lot of stuff to do (I'm writting my bachelor thesis), but i will try to push a fixed version to the xbmc repo asap.

Thank you for your efforts! And sorry, that i lost the sight of the twitch plugin somehow.

The 0.2.5 version gained a lot of code quality thanks to xbmcswift and I really would like that version to be the next "official" release. I will try to fix issues, I had with this version and push 0.2.5 to the xbmc repo. If I can't get it to work in the next 3 days, I will take your version.


RE: [RELEASE] Twitch.tv - kptkill - 2013-03-24

Is there any way to disable skipping back in the stream? I often hit back by mistake, and this will cause the stream to jump back 10 seconds which just decimates the twitch.tv plugin. I often have to just kill xbmc and restart it.


RE: [RELEASE] Twitch.tv - anarckie - 2013-03-28

Agreed - I do this by accident occasionally and it can be frustrating.

Can you add a context menu item to view archives? The justin.tv plugin does it.


RE: [RELEASE] Twitch.tv - dieselboy27 - 2013-03-30

Another great addon, I swear xbmc keeps getting better even years after first using it.


RE: [RELEASE] Twitch.tv - zoydberg - 2013-03-31

thanks again for the addon. i tried the latest version from github, it works very well. honestly though, ive been using the jtv app for a long time for a couple reasons. the jtv app seems to show almost every channel i subscribe to, regardless if they're live or not, so i can easily get into their archived video. another reason is i follow 200 or so channels, the jtv app still seems to not pull in every channel, but i can easily add missing channels to a separate favorites menu in the jtv app.

if those 2 features were implemented into this app, i would switch in heartbeat. i dont know if its always said this, but http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Features_and_supported_formats says speex is supported, but i know its a ffmpeg issue regardless. i havent run into a stream for a while with that issue so it's not much of problem for me anymore.

edit: there is one more thing actually, is it possible to reduce the delay that these apps seem to have when receiving video? if you watch the same stream thru xbmc and on the jtv or twitch site thru a web browser, for me at least xbmc is usually 5-10 seconds behind

Thanks for your feedback. Currently it is really a time issue for me. But I will note these features.
Since this is a open source project: any contribution is appreciated!

I made a request to add version 0.2.6 to the xbmc repository. It should be online soon.


RE: [RELEASE] Twitch.tv - 8hatchery - 2013-04-04

Hello StateOfTheArt,

I saw the problem people had on the first page of this thread, it was a long time ago, but I still got this problem. This is Linux mint14 PC, I installed xbmc from aptitude, so I think it should be xbmc12, and installed addon inside xbmc directly.

Every stream I click, nothing happened, or shows "Playback failed One or more items failed to play. Check the log file for details"
The relevant part of log file is shown below. I did compile and install the rtmp thing from KSV's thread, nothing changed though.

Thank you!

RE: [RELEASE] Twitch.tv - Venares - 2013-04-04

Newest version broke thumbnails again Sad
Also seems a bit inconsistant opening streams.
Gonna go back to Middle's modified 0.2.2 for now as it works pretty much perfectly.

I feel your pain Sad this happens all the time, i will try to figure out a way to deal with it, but i think is more like skin related, make fake focus with twitch add condition.

Im trying to add video archives, but twitch api they have only a featured called highlights,
wich is only some highlights that streamer mark in their videos archives.
i'll figure out a way to deal with it.

Im trying to avoid using jtv api, only twitch api right now, but im working on archives.
about delay it is buffer, the faster is your connection fills the buffer less delay you have, it happens on twitch app too, nothing we can do about it, unless there is a way to not use buffering.

Yes the new StateOfTheArt version uses a diff code from the old one, i`ll try to merge my changes with new version and help StateOfTheArt with development since he is busy.
but im not promising anything soon due my poor skills in python and i need test and learn the new version.


RE: [RELEASE] Twitch.tv - vi6s - 2013-04-05

Hello,

I am using XBMC 12.1 on my Android device (Nexus 10). After the new update, the twitch.tv addon does not work anymore. I am using the latest librtmp. With this librtmp, I was able to watch video on Amazon and other addons without any problems.

After I click on the link, the opening window come up then nothing happens or playback dialog failed comes up. Just to be clear, this only happens for Android device. I have XBMC install on Apple TV, Window 7 and Linux. All other platform works fine except Android. Below is the log for my Android XBMC. Please let me know what is the problem. Thank you
